My mother recently gave me this lovely set of fluted ramekins. They were practically crying out for something yummy. I like custard! And, I like pumpkin. So, I decided to combine the two.
First, I lined the bottoms of the ramekins with a simple crust of crushed gingersnap cookies (biscuits) and melted butter.
Farm fresh eggs from a friend.
Add some sugar, vanilla, whole milk, and a pinch of salt and you have lovely custard. Then stir in a cup of cooked pumpkin and some pumpkin pie spice and voila!
You have pumpkin custard! I sprinkled a tiny bit of nutmeg on top just to make it pretty.
They smelled so heavenly when they were cooking! I had to have a taste while they were still warm. About halfway through, I remembered to take this picture for you. I guess you can tell, it turned out well.
